Description

Interest in the enigma of the human mind is as old as recorded history. Methods for studying the human mind, which have advanced alongside of technology, should also be approached from the perspective of semiotics—the science of signs and sign systems.

Semiotic Perspectives in Evolutionary Psychology, Artificial Intelligence, and the Study of Mind: Emerging Research and Opportunities is an essential scholarly publication that revisits key concepts in the study of mind today, especially as it relates to the concept of intelligence and its modeling in artificial and augmented paradigms. Additionally, the book aims to penetrate the qualities of natural intelligence based on semiotic theory including the role of the imagination and inferential guesswork in creating knowledge and will show how a semiotic approach to intelligence can shed light on the dangers inherent in post-humanism and its nonchalant view that human intelligence is not unique but just another algorithm. Featuring a wide range of topics including neuroscience, sociobiology, and evolutionary psychology, this book is ideal for academicians, professionals, researchers, and students working in AI, psychology, cognitive sciences, semiotics, and culture studies.
